If you are feeling down in the dumps or you have had an illness or injury for some time now, the common thought is to head over to your local GP for a check up and to make sure everything is good. However a lot of the time we can end up visiting the doctor to simply come back out with nothing, and this is incredibly frustrating when we are in pain. But did you ever think of trying other forms of medicine available in the world? There are different types of healing and treatments which can target different parts of the body and help you in new ways, and today we will mention just a few.
1. Distant Healing
Remote or long distance healing is a type of healing which focuses on energy in the body and is committed to balancing this energy in order to help relieve symptoms both physically and mentally. You can stay at home for this treatment and a practitioner will send over good energy to cleanse you and make you feel balanced once more.
Acupuncture is a type of medicine you have most likely heard of before and this will bring to mind images of small needles all over the body. It might sound like a crazy kind of practice but actually, the idea behind acupuncture is to hit certain pressure points in the body which stimulate certain reactions in the body. They can be used to treat many different things and it can be a wonderful way to relieve things like stress and digestive issues.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils found in nature to treat a variety of ailments and to relax the patient and make them feel better. Oils can be rubbed on the skin, inhales and also ingested depending on the health issue and different essential oils can be used for different things. Feeling congested? Use eucalyptus oil. Feeling stressed and can’t sleep? Use lavender oil. Every oil is unique and it can be a natural way to fight off illness and aches without using medicine.
